It’s always a good time to give, but the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal , when our Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was born, makes our giving especially blessed. His mission brought the Divine light and learning to us. Our job is to preserve the sacred source and contribute positively to our surroundings and spread the message of peace, mercy and compassion which is at the core of Prophetic (ﷺ) teachings. Minhaj Interfaith and Welfare Foundation carried out various welfare activities in this blessed month to fulfill the needs of poor and destitute.
Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League (India chapter) organized spiritual gatherings to commemorate the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet (SAW) in a beautiful manner. These programmes were held on January 19 at six different places in Kolkata namely Central Kolkata, Alimuddin Street, Topisa, Howrah (Shipur), Howrah (Pilkhana), Hoogly. These events were attended by women in a large number.
On the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, Islam enjoins us to attend to the underprivileged and take care of the disadvantaged and share happiness and joy with the destitute sections of society. This Eid is also called Eid-ul-Fitr because the donation distributed among the destitute, the poor and the downtrodden sections of society before the offering of Eid prayers is called ‘Fitr’.
